+ PEACE FOREVER + by BoGilliam + PEACE FOREVER + by BoGilliam
Never has there been a good war or a bad peace

- Benjamin Franklin

Every gun that is made, every warship launched, every rocket fired signifies, in the final sense, a theft from those who hunger and are not fed, those who are cold and not clothed.

- Dwight D. Eisenhower

What difference does it make to the dead, the orphans, and the homeless, whether the mad destruction is wrought under the name of totalitarianism or the holy name of liberty and democracy?

- Gandhi

I'm fed up to the ears with old men dreaming up wars for young men to die in.

- George McGovern

Only the dead have seen the end of war.

- Plato


Hibuki and New cry for the end of violence...

A homage to war heroes, those who only want to go home alive and see their families.

The picture is true to it meaning.

War brings nothing but destruction and make people suffer. There were some wars that had a meaning and others where it was pointless. Peace should indeed be forever but there is aat least one person or someone that wants to distrupt that peace within the shadows only to enjoy the torment that the people receive.

Truly, if there is evil in this world, it lies within the heart of mankind. -Edward D. Morrison

Is that a grenade pin in Hibuki's mouth?? I hope he didn't forget to lob that grenade... :)

Beautiful piece, I like the contrast between the "warm"-coloured characters and the grey backdrop (though the grey you used is kind of warm as well)!

Peace is something we all wish for...even me sometimes but thats a different story though. In todays world seems like peace can only be achieved by fightning without regards on whose caught in it at least thats what I seen throughout my life. Its like were doing all this hurting to show off not bring peace this will brings us down and it shouldn't be like that...Oh I'm sorry this picture brought back some memories of mine.

Anywho back to the pic: The coloring is is very well done on this and you captured the emotions very well.

This picture really does show the emotion of peace after a war, I really like how you done the scenery and the two main characters, they really look like War Heros :salute:

It history war. But Don't Give up youself.
LycanBlu Featured By Owner May 21, 2007
I think i got emotional when i saw this T_T But I despise war. Though i havnt lost anyone in my family to war, there are many who have, and its terrible that our world leaders just cant stop. Your art is amazing, and its message is even greater, plus you two are both so cute... Love the coloring completely.. if it wouldnt bother you to much to tell, was this made on a program, or colored by hand? Cause it looks sorta like pastel
